Tuesday Tutorial ~ Strips and Strings

By April 11, 2017May 5th, 2020Blog, Scrap Busting, tips & tricks

While cleaning out my sewing room I found several bins with strips. I intended to only have two, one for brights and one for cozy colors. Since I had more than would fit in the two bins I went on a hunt for quilts to use a few of these up.

I’ve made many string quilts. They are fun, easy and scrap friendly.  I found several ideas and tutorials on my search so I thought I would share today.

 My method for making this string friendly quilt is here.

 Ann at Fret Not Yourself and Kaja of Sew Slowly have been having a coin quilt challenge. Make sure to visit there are lots of inspiring quilts and ideas to use up your strips.

 I made this quilt forModa Bake shop.

 And Tia Curtis has this video with three variations.

And finally this braid quilt. You can find the pattern here.

    Delightful quilts . . . I have three or four jelly rolls setting on my shelves, so seeing some fresh ideas is always a blessing. Thank you.

    Love all of those quilts! Just clicked your link and saw how you use dryer sheets….sheer brilliance! Thank you for sharing that awesome tip. My string pile has been growing and my scrappy spiderweb quilt has not been happening because I hate pulling paper off the back of blocks.
